    If the economy picks up it won't matter.

    What I find the most amusing is that it seems to be those on medicare that are the most vocal.

    Most of what you have seen in the tea parties and the town halls is folks who were unhappy with the government to start with, but were promised hope and change and voted for it. Buyers remorse has set in, and now they're vocal.

    So when the idiots of the world say "where were all these protesters during the eight years of boooooosh?" That's the answer. They were talking with their votes, and weren't listened to.

    It seems people are really starting to focus on the deficit.

    'Let them eat cake' is not a winning formula.

    Keep thinking that. The republicans thought that those people screaming at them about their spending and their desire to give amnesty to illegal aliens were a fringe minority. 2006 told them the truth.

    As did 2008.

    See, this is the answer to the idiotic question, "where were the protesters" they were voting OUT incumbents! Then when "Hope and Change" came along they voted FOR it in droves, and can see now they were conned.

    When the Con loses the Mark, the Mark sometimes gets loudly vocal.

    It's only "marked old" to YOU, because you have seen it and the system knows that. Anyone who hasn't seen it yet, it's still marked "new."

    It's all in the cookies.
